I was channel surfing today and caught a program about a case I'd heard about years ago. It involved the disappearance and murder of a Bellevue, IA antiques dealer who specialized in Civil War items. The case had many twists and turns, including the fact that the body could not be found, despite a guy who was friends with the victim and his girlfriend being identified as the killers.
Eventually his skull was found encased in a block of concrete at a truck stop in Missouri, but no one knew his identity. The authorities in Missouri had a likeness reconstructed from the skull and distributed the likeness.
Then a waitress in Louisiana who spent her spare time trying to help solve such cases managed to comb through missing person's web sites and felt she had a match and authorities were able to confirm that the skull indeed belonged to the Bellevue antique's dealer. The couple had killed the man, supposedly by accident in a fist fight, then travelled around the mid-west selling off antiques they'd stolen from him. They'd dismembered the body and scattered he pieces all around the midwest.
They were eventually tried and convicted.
But at the end of the show, the credits listed the QC Times for providing additional footage, as well as KWQC, who apparently are now located in Louisianna.
Just remember, you can always believe it if you see it on TV.
